So I was reading the other day that Kate Moss’s brother is set to open a restaurant and they also say that his famous sibling might even help design the eatery. It was his childhood dream to open a restaurant and luckily for him, he had a famous sister that could help him to fulfill his dream. In the interview he also revealed that he would create fusion restaurant, mixing different ingredients and Vietnamese food but he also said that sister Kate was fully behind his plans and a ‘massive fan’ of his food but also that she was planning to help him design the new eatery.
I know what I wouldn’t do. Not playing much attention on a decor that’s for sure. For me with the food that is the most important. You must take a look about what this space was used previously. Maybe this place was earlier also a restaurant. So you mustn’t mix things.
Or once there was some Chinese buffets in some corner of the place where you want to put your wine storage. I know that real estate is expensive but try to remove every trace of previous owners. Not just for health reason but also because of karma. I do believe in it, so don’t laugh. So if you have legacy from previous owners don’t take it, throw it away. You all know best if you want some Mediterranean mural in your steak house. Or if you have Bonsai tree and you want to continue to have it your brand new 60s themed diner. For me that’s definition of mis-match decor. So pick a theme and don’t mix it with others. When we talk about fusion in kitchen, then it’s ok.
Also what it’s important for me – not to be cheap. I understand the economy and that you need to save some money so you can pay more for other important things, but nobody likes cheap furniture. Small café isn’t a restaurant. In restaurants you must have big tables and matching comfortable chairs. I saw in lots of coffee shops that people have cheap furniture and I could understand that. In that places that design can pass. It could be something modern and young people could enjoy in that. But restaurants are different story.
